A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

Exim could be made to crash or run programs if it received specially
crafted network traffic.

Software Description:
- exim4: Exim is a mail transport agent


It was discovered that Exim incorrectly handled certain string operations.
A remote attacker could use this issue to cause Exim to crash, resulting in
a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.
